have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t

we have already made to priorities other than medicare social security and defense, means that we spend on everything from education to public safety, less as a share of our economy than it has -- than has been true for a generation. and that's not a recipe for growth. so, we've got to do both to stabilize our finances over the longterm but spur more growth in the short term. i have said, i'm opened to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said that we need more revenue through tax loopholes. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out that the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate on this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care. they don't think it's smart to protect endless loopho
